My family and I stopped here for lunch on the drive from Calgary to Banff.

Canmore is approximately 103 kms (64 miles) west of Calgary and 23 kms (14 miles) east of Banff on the Trans-Canada Highway.

We explored downtown Canmore and Main Street, which includes eateries, art galleries, and boutique shopping.

Although we didn’t visit also in the downtown area is the Canmore Museum & Geoscience Centre (902B, 7th Ave) and the North West Mounted Police Barracks, built in 1893.
